About Us

After hearing guests tell us their experiences on marine tours felt touristy and humdrum, we knew we could do better. Live Ningaloo was created to deliver the “WOW” nature-based experience that makes memories to last a lifetime.

Our vision is to create authentic, life-changing nature-based experiences that inspire pro-environmental behaviour.

Educating and Delighting

At Live Ningaloo, our core values are sustainability and education. We are passionate about helping our guests discover the wonders of Ningaloo Reef Marine Park in a way that both teaches and delights. You’ll leave our tours not only having seen sights that only the Ningaloo Reef can offer but understanding the delicate balance that lies beneath the surface of our ocean. Our wish is that you won’t just create unforgettable joyous memories of experiencing our unique marine park and its lifeforms, but be inspired to make changes in your habits and educate others to protect our world oceans and environments in the long term.

Small group tours

We have made a conscious choice to only run small group tours for a maximum of ten guests. We believe this is a more sustainable way to interact with the delicate reef and its wildlife. It’s also better for our guests, who get a more personalised experience, and our staff who have the time to share their incredible knowledge and passion with you. You’ll never be just another number on our tours! Running our tours in small groups also means we can be more flexible and nimble. With only 10 guests to get in and out of the ocean, we can respond quickly to reports of Whale Shark and Humpback sightings from our spotter plane. This gives you a better chance of swimming with these magnificent creatures and means you get to spend a much longer part of your tour in the water. Unlike larger tour providers, we don’t need to rotate groups to comply with licence conditions for swimming with Whale Sharks (maximum of 10 participants at a time). We’ll make sure your tour gives you the best possible opportunity to see wildlife up close. Find out about our popular small group tours here: Our Tours
